Netflix Watch It Now - mother lode today

Postby Sticky Spice » Thu Apr 01, 2010 10:48 pm

I checked on a couple of these and it's no April Fool's.

Today Netflix Watch It Now had a huge influx of new talent including:

X-Files - 9 seasons
Roswell - 3 seasons
Prison Break - 4 seasons
My Name Is Earl - 4 seasons
Lie to Me - 1 season
King of the Hill - 12 seasons
Firefly series
Dollhouse - 1 season
Buffy - 7 seasons
Bones - 4 seasons
Arrested Development - 3 seasons
24 - 7 seasons

And some other stuff... not to mention I'm making my way through the seasons of Rescue Me.

A great month to sign up for $10 and just go nuts.

Don't you get your first two weeks free?

I used to have Netflix and it was pretty good. But afters years of Blockbuster, anything would be good.

They didn't have the X Files before? :-?

I wish season 4 of Dexter, season 2 of Fringe, and season 6 of The Office would hurry up and come out. :-[

Although I just saw that season 2 of True Blood is out in May. ;-D

If you guys haven't watched the IT Crowd, all the seasons are on Instant Watch. I think it's pretty funny... kind of a cross of the British Office and Big Bang Theory.

First time I've heard Fringe mentioned on here, I like that show a lot. Last night's episode was pretty good. I love Dexter and Office too though.

I really like Fringe too. It's not nearly as good but it kinda has an X Files feel to it. I never watch TV shows while they're running on TV, I'll never remember and will miss episodes. Also I don't have a DVR so I just wait for them to reach Netflix and then watch a season over a period of a few days.

I use to have netflix. The problem was, I never seemed to get the new releases until a 3-4 weeks after they were released. I just thought the overall service was poor. Not Blockbuster-poor, but poor. In the end, I found out that my local library had all the TV shows and movies that I rented off Netflix, but for free. I probably spend $3-4 a month at Redbox now to rent a movie or two, and I have a steady influx of DVD's coming to me from the library. Star Trek:TNG, Criminal Minds, NCIS, Burn Notice, etc...

The problem I have with libraries is that the discs are usually unplayable because of how scratched up they are. Plus they don't have Bluray. Bluray tends to be a little better for availability on Netflix but I'm starting to see that change in the past couple months for new releases and of course Netflix just signed deals to make some new releases available after a month in stores so that sucks. But, they did promise more instant watch selections and that seems to be happening.

Instant watch is great but it's still inferior to a DVD and far inferior to Bluray because it's 2 channel stereo. The picture quality is probably just as good as DVD for standard streaming, but the HD streaming isn't close to Bluray and the selection is lacking for HD. I cancelled my Xbox Live subscription because the only thing I was using it for was Netflix. When I received my Wii Netflix disc it didn't make sense to keep Live for a handful of HD movies and shows I wanted to watch when I could rent them on Bluray with full surround sound and better picture quality.
